Extracts from this document...

Introduction

M1 unit 3 Comparing and Contrasting the Marketing Techniques of Tesco and Umbro: In this report I am going to compare two successful organisations by comparing their marketing strategies. I am going to use the Ansoff matrix to show how both organisations differ within the growth strategies and this will also generate an insight on which customers both organisations look to attract. Brands The brands differ in many ways and this is mainly because they look to attract different markets. Tesco has a Brand name which is also the shop name and it?s the word ?Tesco? but in bright red cap locks with light blue lines underlining each word separately. This brand goes on their food products and they have another brand ?f&f? for their clothing products. Whereas Umbros brand is a diamond in a small diamond and the words ?umbro? at the bottom, this is on all their clothing and products such as bags. ...read more.

Existing Products New Products Existing Markets Market Penetration Product Development New Markets Market Development Diversification This is the Anoffs Matrix growth strategy and businesses go through the strategies, whether it would be all of them or just one of them, they have to make sure they go through these strategies in order to grow in the business. Every business starts off with market penetration as this helps them keep existing customers loyal. Then a business may choose to attract new customers (markets) with their existing products, this is called market development as the business looks to attract new customers. The business may then want to make a new product for their existing customers; this is called product development as the business looks to sale different products to the same customers. When a business makes a new product to attract a new market this is called Diversification as the business will be taking a risk in selling new stock to new customers. ...read more.

Conclusion

Diversification: Tesco have been through diversification as they currently own a petrol station and a mobile network whereas Umbro has not been through diversification as they only sale sport products but they have made football related pencil cases. Relationship Marketing: Tesco uses club card to make a relationship with the customer as they have millions of customers who shop every day and they want them to keep coming back and not go to their competitors. They designed the club card so that it generates loyal customers Whereas Umbro doesn?t deal with individual customers; they only deal with their retail customers. They also deal with football teams as they are a sports manufacture. Tesco make relationships with retail customers and offer them deals so they keep them coming back. Conclusion: It can be seen that both companies use similar marketing techniques but in different ways and they both use the Anoff matrix to grow even though they?re both very different companies.
